I made this for dinner tonight exactly as the recipe was written. It was pretty good. I see this recipe as sort of the base recipe that one could get very creative with. Different veggies, different seasonings, add cheese, etc. Can't wait to experiment more with it!

My family really like this recipe. It reminds us of Rice a Roni without the pasta and a healthier version. Cheap to make and easy to fix.
